Hibs’ legend Lawrie Reilly’s League Championship medals will be put up for sale this week and the Hibernian Historical Trust are hoping to bid with a view to obtaining them and having them on display at Easter Road.

Arguably the greatest player in the Club’s history, Lawrie Reilly holds the record for the most international caps won by a player while at Easter Road.

The only one of the ‘Famous Five’ to support Hibs as a schoolboy, he spent his entire career at Easter Road.

Reilly hung up his boots as Hibs top League goalscorer tallying 187 goals, a record that is firmly held to this day.

The Trust – an Independent Charity, based in Easter Road Stadium, was formed to protect, display and acquire Hibernian memorabilia.

One of its aims is to ensure that important artefacts are secured, displayed and are available for the Hibernian family to see and observe at the home of our Club. In the past, it has acquired a number of important medals and awards for our collection, including the complete set of medals won by Gordon Smith.

A number of generous supporters have pledged financial support to supplement the funds available.

The Trust believes that obtaining these medals and their display at Easter Road is important for all Hibernian supporters rather than them being purchased for a private collection, although this remains a possibility.

The Auction will take place on the 22nd August at Thomson Roddick’s Rosewell (Edinburgh) branch
